I learned a new word this week. HA UGE - yep - that's it - HA UGE - not HUGE - but HA UGE - it was pretty funny to hear. My friends daughter was sitting next to me on Sunday and as we were having a good laugh over a kids book on the couch she turned to her jeans and pulled on the tops of them. Well, the tops of the thigh - pulled at the fabric and it came up - she then proceeded to say - wearing her size 10 pair of jeans (I do believe they were size 10) - "these things are so HA UGE" - I feel fat in these things - I am going to have to change that".
Then just as she kept saying it I realized that my pants were HA UGE too. They pulled up even further then hers. I got this glow on my face, started to smile from ear to ear and realized that my pants have not been HA UGE in a very long time. Always tight, snug and well, never any room to breath. I am making progress!
The other girl on the other end of the couch pulled at her size 3 pants - yep, size 3 and didn't have any room to say that new word. I want to be like that. Maybe not a size 3, but to actually pull on my pants and not have anything to pull. And to actually be happy with the size I am in and that they are not tight, or stuck to my skin because I forced myself to get into them, just the fact that I will look good and feel good about the size I am wearing.
They both didn't mean anything by it - it was just a fun word. I didn't go into the fact that I do feel HA UGE in jeans, in pants, in shorts or anything else for that matter. That there are times I do feel HA UGE when I look in the mirror or see my reflection in my shadow.
I am working on getting that word out of my brain waves. I will have to think of another word in the coming months - how about
SKIN - NEE - ME, what about
LOOK - N - GLOW- MO, or another one -
MARV - O - LADY
Hey, look....I CAN expand my vocabulary...........
